main event at the confluence of Bathurst/King West/Wellington

The main event at  the confluence of  Bathurst – King West – Wellington this year is building. The building up of condos and the removal of small buildings that once housed the small manufacturers who gave great support to this city. The small firms have been long  supplanted by offices for media and designers and other such persons. This is happening fast and if you want to see a WTO (West Toronto) area  move from one period of history to another, you could do no better then a 1/2 hour walk in there.

Maybe just maybe enough of the old tales of the small manufacturers will stay to provide all the new condo residents, with some history to rub shoulders with. This area greatly needs this dense development as it cleans out in the evenings once the area workers have visited the pub or had a meal after work.
